Research: Russia’s top 10 Metal and Steel Manufacturers Plants Mills
We have previously written about the largest steel and metal factories that manufacture billet, drum, and barrels in Russia. Russia is ranked from the 6th to the 5th place in this year (2016) and was relegated South Korea in the top producers of steel list. The domestic steelmakers have also decreased the production of steel, however to less of a way than is seen in other nations. The reduction in the domestic market could be offset with a dramatic increase in demand for exports, which was due to reduction in the value of the Ruble which improved the competitiveness of Russian the production of steel.
Below is a listing of the most important Russian steel firms, which manufacture pig iron, cast round billets, strips shipsbuilding steel, hot-rolled galvanized steel, cold-rolled steel, painted steel pipe billets, square billets and rolled steel metalware, billets, Direct-reduced Iron (DRI) and iron ore pellets, high-transformer steel grain-oriented electrical steel hot-rolled sheets, springs rail wheels, iron sections railroad rails and slabs; oil gas and water supply pipes used in the gas and oil construction, automotive and machine industries.
